  • Description

    Description

    We are a retired American couple that have lived in Greece for over 40 years. Both of us graduated from MSU in Michigan. Our home is very American. We speak English some Greek and I also speak German. We live in a passive solar house and consider the environment to be something to be cared for. We have about 6 stemmas on a steep hill just above Athens. We are 2 km from the commuter train which goes to Athens every hour and arrives there in 22 minutes making it easy to tour the city and to return. We have planted fruit and nut trees, usually have a large vegetable garden, lots of flowers and find there is always something that needs doing. You would have a room with twin beds and your own bath room. Food is home cooked. We live in a farming area very close to Kifissia. Here it is quiet but easy to get to lively Greek life. Absolutely no smoking.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My husband, Leonard, was an exchange student to Pakistan in the International Farm Youth Exchange program. That experience changed his life. We are well traveled and enjoy different nationalities and appreciate different points of view.

    Farming experience is a plus. Knowing how to set up a dripper system is also helpful. Knowing how to use a weed eater or strimmer is very useful. Knowing how to paint some interior walls would be good.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 1 km from the bus, 2 km from the commuter train, about 20 minutes by car to the subway station. Within 22 minutes the commuter train has you in Athens. That same train takes you to the port and from there the islands. Athens has lots of things to do and see. Far too many to list here. Young people like visiting the islands.
